Etihad Holidays has been announced as the winner of the award for Best Tour Operator to the Middle East (small) at the prestigious 2016 British Travel Awards. The announcement was made on 23 November at a Gala Awards ceremony, held in London and attended by close to a thousand members of the travel industry.
Holidays UK, launched in 2013, offers dynamically packaged holidays at
exceptional rates with many of the world’s leading hotel brands. It also delivers
an extensive range of additional services, including its stopover programme,
tours, excursions, family attractions, safaris, and car hire, all of which use
Etihad Airways and its partner airline network. The tour operator has
previously won Best Tour Operator to the Middle East (small) in 2014 and won the
silver award in 2015.
Peisley, Acting CEO of Hala Group, operators of Etihad
Holidays, said: “We are very proud to have received the award for Best Tour
Operator to the Middle East (small). Everyone at Etihad Holidays works
tirelessly to provide the best possible products and service for our guests,
and this award is a welcome endorsement of the quality and reliability of our
holiday packages, especially to our home, Abu Dhabi. We would like to thank
everyone that voted in the British Travel Awards for recognising our efforts,
and look forward to continuing to provide this valued service to guests
travelling to ‘Destination Abu Dhabi’, and beyond.”
Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “Etihad Holidays is
to be congratulated on winning the award for Best Tour Operator to the Middle
East (small). Competition was fierce this year with more companies entering the
competition than ever before - but ultimately it is the travelling public who
decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in
the business. The British Travel Awards is the largest awards programme in the
UK, and to win is truly a testament to the great products and services travel
companies offer to their customers.”
